ash reshteh ingredients


Step One 

The most important thing in cooking Ash Reshteh or Ash e Reshteh is soaking the beans, which helps to cook them quickly in a short time. Let them soak for 5 to 6 hours and change their water twice so that the swelling of the beans also disappears.

Step Two

To prepare Persian soup noodles, first put the chickpeas in a strainer, wash them, and pour them into a pot. Pour 4 to 5 glasses of water into the pot and let the chickpeas cook over medium heat. Put the beans in another pot and pour 5 glasses of water on them.

Step Three

It’s better to put it on high heat until the water boils and then moderate the heat to cook the beans over time. Note that peas and beans should not be completely softened and crushed.

Step Four

As soon as you tested them on the teeth and they were cooked and kept their appearance, we should remove them from the heat and set them aside. Pour the lentils into a bowl, pour water over it, and let it soak for 30 minutes.

Step Five 

Clean and wash the vegetables, put them in the drain, spread a clean cloth, and place the vegetables on the cloth. Let them dry and put them in the shredder or on the kitchen board. Chop them in a medium-size (vegetables should not be finely chopped) and set aside.

Step Six 

Peel the onions and wash them, chop them on a kitchen board, pour oil into a pan and put them on low heat. Put the onions in a pan, fry them until they are golden, and then put them on a plate.

Step Seven

Peel garlic, then grate and fry them. Bake them until they become golden and pour them into a plate. To not lose the properties of garlic, it is recommended to fry it very little in oil.

Step Eight 

Immediately check the pan. If there is no oil in the pan, pour more oil into it again and reduce the heat. Pour the dried mint into the pan and fry. As soon as the mints change colour slightly, remove the pan from the heat. We set it aside and fry it constantly so that the hot mint does not burn and does not turn black.

Step Nine

Pour 1/3 of the water into the pot that we have prepared for cooking the Persian Ash Reshteh, put the lid on the pot, and put it on high heat to boil faster. When the water was boiling, drain the lentils, then add them to the boiling water.

Step Ten 

In the same way, pour the cooked chickpeas and beans into boiling water. Now, add the vegetables and immediately add half a spoon of salt to it (We add salt to preserve the green color.)

Step Eleven 

Now, add half of the hot garlic, onion, hot mint and a little turmeric to the soup. Remember not to leave the lid on the pot; allow the vegetables to cook for 30 to 45 minutes on medium heat. 

Step Twelve 

After cooking the vegetables, cut the noodles in half and pour them into the soup. After 15 to 20 minutes, taste the soup, and if necessary, add salt to the soup again. If you want to add curd, You can also add curd to the soup in this step.
